tv   Craig Melvin Reports  MSNBC  June 21, 2021 8:00am-9:00am PDT

8:00 am
links to segments here. let's go to craig melvin who picks up our coverage. >> we're in the early hours of summer already. a series of pressure points coming to a head. gun violence is flaring from cities from coast to coast. also a tale of two americas. the vaccine bringing normalcy to large swafts of the country, but a new variant is taking root in others. it is a make or break week for two of president bide's key agenda items. a group of bipartisan senators
8:01 am
sell to unveil a proposal today. one thing is for sure, that negotiations are exposing cracks and a senate vote on dramts voting rights bill. . all of that bringing new pressure over that critical word again. the phil buster as they claim, this is a big week for democracy. by the end of the week we will know more about how broken the upper chamber is. but we'll start with that breaking news from the supreme court. a rare unanimous decision in support of student athletes. our justice correspondent is reading about it closely.
8:02 am
they also found more, walk us through the decision and what it means and what it doesn't mean? >> the ncaa loses a key legal question about if it can fend off rules to compensation. the specific rules did not apply to paying athletes. these are things like musical instruments, sax phones, the ability to take internships. they say don't make us change this, this could endanger the scheme. but by a unanimous ruling today the supreme court said no, the ncaa cannot justify these
8:03 am
restrictions. these rules do make it harder for schools to compete with each other if they're all on the same playing field. and that's why they're assessed under anti-trust rules. but through is a very interesting and i think suggestive concurrence from one of the justices, brett cavanagh. he says yes, i agree this is not about compensation. if there were a subsequent legal challenge the ncaa would have to defend the rules and he said "i don't think they can." the remaining compensation rules, i don't think, can pass muster. the ncaa must apply a legally valid justification for the remaining rules. as i see it they may lack such a justification. in a way it is a small defeat on the specific rule, but bad news
8:04 am
for the ncaa hoping this decision would be a firewall against these changes. one thing to note here a number of states are going faster than the courts are on this question. something like 15 states already passed laws saying that students should be able to receive some question sags for the use of their name, image, likeness, that would allow them to potentially do things like product endorsements. some of those will continue this month. so this court case does not make it's position strong. >>. >> you mentioned this section of the decision and it jumped out at me. nowhere kel can they get abut with not paying their workers a fair market rate.
8:05 am
here is the sentence, the ncaa not above the law. i find it very fascinating. pete we'll let you get back to sifting through this. will, let me bring you into the conversation here. it seems that this is the beginning of the up ending of college athletics as we have known it for generations now. is that a fair assessment? >> it starts to chip away at that. he picked up, pointed out le cross. that may be a cavanagh thing, but certainly he brings it up as a key thing saying that it is
8:06 am
not enough. that is not only not just the justify, but the reason that college ports existed. the idea that we have always done it this way. it is built into the way that college athletics, and the way that he has, that was it was key to say that there may be no big plan if there is no amateurism. i think he certainly made it available for people to chip away at it. >> you wrote about this very case in april and you referred to the ncaa as the cartel were your at all surprised by the
8:07 am
decision today? >> certainly any time anything is nam it is surprising. but the case here was not strong. they started to realize that. and they traded back off things that were too late. and i think it is a good example of this. they said no, the legislation brought that and they didn't have anything to do with that. and he started to pass their laws and they said okay, we'll figure something out. so they talked about the states and the laws. it is worth noting that those legislatures often pass those laws an an idea there in georgia. and the stadium, the deal was the player wills come to georgia
8:08 am
now. it is such a great option. >> it is smaller schools, smaller budgets, and practical implications. >> yes, it is a concern, one might argument, the ncaa has been very protective. everything they have been able to do is going towards the larger program. there is a lot of questions to figure out here. saying oh, we'll figure out this system, there is people is the ncaa saying give us another
8:09 am
idea. . how can we pay everyone and make this all work out. things have chipped away, they're going to have to figure that out now. no longer can you pretend that amateurism will work. it will play out. that will just chip further and further aware. i think it is more honest and fair, but no question there is a lot of stuff that people need to figure out in the near future. we will leave it there welcome thank you, buddy, appreciate you. coming up, a make or break week for president biden's agenda. the president is spending the next few days meeting with lawmakers to try to find a path forward. i want to bring in robert gibbs.
8:10 am
he is also an msnbc political analyst. friday we asked when we would see that bipartisan plan. we now now it could happen today. where do things stand right now? >> every few hours behinding on who you ask, the time line for revealing the plan, they say i don't know who keeps saying that. we were hearing definitely today. this has become a moving twargt and the man is taking on tones of "infrastructure week" which we remember from the donald trump administration.
8:11 am
the idea of the gas tax they have poured cold water on that. as it has been from the beginning, there it is need for some of the hard infrastructure. but how to pay for it continues to be the big problem here. >> goack to the full screen here. $580 billion, i believe, roughly, in new spending, where is the rest of that coming from? >> that is in the works to be spent on infrastructure. there is a lot of bills being
8:12 am
worked on now that are setting up infrastructure. something that congress does as part of their regular work here. you can think of it as a bonus on top of that. it is in the spirit of going big on hard infrastructure. >> you're reporting that president biden is trying to find a path forward. his agenda today will include this new child tax credit awareness day. take us through his focus right now. >> the most precious commodity is time. they kept his schedule as free as possible in the next 48 hours so he can have as many phone calls and potentially in-personal meetings with the key players, and also the bath way to reconciliation. they want to decide which way they get this priority for the president, a major
8:13 am
infrastructure here. they think there is multiple roots to take, but this week we really need to have the gps tell us which one to use to get there. the white house throwing up a little bit of a red flag on that issue. that is one of the areas they want to use to pay for this, and i think this helps explain the deal to get it to the president so they can move forward on this. you mentioned the child tax credit. this was expanded in the american rescue plan. that is that deal that passed in march. what the white house is trying to do is remind the public that this is coming your way.
8:14 am
they will see them directly into their direct deposit accounts. they have to do so by july 15th. so vice president harris leading the way here this morning. they want to try to build it. it is the american jobs plan, the american families plan, it would expand these benefits through 2025. so the white house on multiple tracks here but they're trying to remind americans of a chi bill they already implemented. >> mentioning the tax, it is an under statement to say that the president can't let it
8:15 am
disappear. listen to what bernie sanders said on sunday. >> it is roads and bridges and that's what we need. a much greater numbers. one of the concerns i have is how they are going to pay for their proposals. and they're not clear yet. some of the speculation is a gas tax, a fee on electric vehicles, those are proposals i would not support. >> robert gibbs, how important is it for democrats to be on the same page right now? >> i think what you saw him stay there, even as garrett reports, we don't know when we're going to see the plan you have a certain number of democrats
8:16 am
positioning against something before it has even been released. the rubber will really hit the road for infrastructure, right? if that is it, they're raising the corporate tax rate. it gets everybody very quickly. everybody will pay a higher gas tax. so i think that this is going to be an important week. i think what is working against any of this is not just the president's time, but the limited about of legislative time but the time that things have to get moving on capitol hill to get this in a position to be able to pass. if they pick reconciliation or
8:17 am
if they move forward. it is a huge week. >> i know you're a fan of college athletics, what do you make of the high courts decision? when a decision is unanimous, i think it is a flashing red light. they have to get ahead of this. they have been slow to react to this change. if it is educational benefits, if it is the name, image welcome and likeness legislation, the push has to be that it will be on a federal level. to the point it was made again you have states passing different rules on this. there needs to be one set of
8:18 am
rules for all athletes and all schools. i think the challenge is on the ncaa to understand it's not about whether or not things will change, it's about what will change, and f they're going to continue to operate as an over seer, they have to operate that way. >> we're watching two very different covid realities play out across the country right now. in some states, crowded concerts, stadiums at full capacity. life getting back to normal. other states stig struggling to get people vaccinated. they're dealing with outbreaks and the delta variants.

this morning even the olympic games in tokyo are inching closer to normalcy. local fans will be allowed to cheer on their favorite athletes there. venues limited to 40% capacity. up to 10,000 people max. officials are warning they could bar all spectators from those games if the pandemic worsens
8:30 am
there. the games are a reminder they are set to open july 23rd. the announcement coming as some american cities are seeing a post pandemic boom. in other areas cases are rising as experts sound the alarm over that rapidly spreading delta variant. steph, we have two very different realities emerging in this country and a lot of it has to do with vaccination rates. walk us through what is happening. >> it really does. i'm here in madison square garden. if you were to walk through these streets a year ago you would not see anybody. and now you're starting to see people come back to work, but you're seeing tourists on the
8:31 am
streets. anyone that has flown american has seen that the airlines are bursting at the seams. you have a divide growing, and the people that are vaccinated and those unvaccinated. there is a political divide between the states getting vaccinated and those that are not unfortunately. the rates are low and there has been upticks in case numbers. in new york city last night they had their first 100% capacity for foo fighters. there was a catch. you had to have a ticket, you had to have a vaccine.
8:32 am
it was quite a show. >>. >> never night, the foo fighters rocking madison square garden. >> it is amazing. >> new york state will slowly start to faze out the state. the race to get shots in arms is growing more urgent as the deadly variant takes hold. missouri seeing an alarming rise in cases, up 59% in the last two weeks. health officials in green county home to mercy springfield
8:33 am
hospital estimate it is responsible for up to 90% of cases there. >> we're seeing the spike in a longer population. >> they say the key is getting younger people vaccinated. >> it is not a political thing, it is a way to protect ourselves and each other and helping us get back to where we need to be. >> in florida the highest daily average of new cases, nearly 1400. one county having to close their administrative headquarter after two people died and several were hospitalized. many were younger and the cases were of a severity of hospitalization or death. >> the bottom line for health official social security get that vaccine. it's the vaccine that can protect you. the vaccines out there right now, craig, are standing up
8:34 am
against this delta variant. >> did you go to the show? >> no, i did not welcome like yourself i have to get up very early but if someone had handed me a ticket i would have been happy to be there. i miss live music, i'm so glad it is coming back. >> good to see you, stephanie gosk there in midtown. dr. hilton is an associate professor at the university of virginia. let's start with what we heard from stephanie. this different reality depending on where you live in the country. are we at a point now where everyone wants to get the vaccine, they already gotten it.
8:35 am
this continued campaign to try to convince people, are there still fol left to be convinced to get it? >> i think there are people that are vaccine curious and vaccine hesitant. i don't think we can turn our eye to the fact that we still have limited access to many people particularly in rural communities and underserved populations. to tell you the truth seeing that foo fighters concert just gave me hives. the tsa reported some two million travelers yesterday. people are coming from those areas that have low vaccination rates, and they're traveling to go to those concerts. and what we know is there is breakthrough cases.
8:36 am
the u.k. is seeing people pass away that are fully vaccinated. i know people are tired of covid-19 but covid-19 is not tired of us. >> so i'm hearing you're not heading to any vaccines? >> i would not go, and if i did it would be with a mask on. we know that it is having more severe symptoms. people in the u.k. are getting hospitalized. and it is younger ages. if you're less than 50 years old your more likely to be hospitalized. so what does that mean as we open our country and we look the at things like the olympics in
8:37 am
japan, and we're flying people from all over the tworld go to that area. it's very risky and at a time when we don't have heard immunity anywhere. i feel like it is jeopardizing everything. we need to get control of the virus before it controls us. >> there is also a strategy shift of the mass vaccination sites. they are shutting down and officials are focusing more on pop up clinics. is that the right strategy? >> i think it is not just where
8:38 am
the location is, but the time, too. if we have persons working two or three jobs, and vaccinations are just 9:00 to 5:00, that's not accessible for them. we also need to consider meeting people where they are. that means having school thourss that is what we should do. the last month that children are being allowed is they're seeing 25% and it is not being shared equally. less than 10% are for the children. it is a real problem if we don't keep up and if it is at 360 a day and we're hitting two million back in april. it's a dangerous game that we're starting to play.

8:52 am
but now you're hearing from that city's top law enforcement officer about a plan to reduce crime in the city. tell us about it. >> reporter: that's right, craig. and it's a phrase that you've heard before, community policing. we'll actually hear from the superintendent a little bit later today in a press conference that he holds essentially weekly after these weekends of violence. but he's doubling down on this idea of community engagement. chicago has been doing this program and having this program for about two years, but it's facing a major expansion. look at what we're hearing from the department. >> this is what it looks like? >> yeah, literally, you're just walking out in the street and you're talking to folks. >> reporter: it's community policing and deputy chief angel novalez is charged with refreshing the concept. the program and its leader getting a major endorsement from chicago's top cop. >> this is a transformative moment for cpd. >> reporter: a moment that can't come soon enough for a city
8:53 am
that's seen shootings spike and murders rise just in the first quarter of this year. for novalez, the solution is in the community. >> once you establish a relationship with them, people are more apt to speak with you, exchange information, tell you about problems that sometimes we don't think are police problems but may lead to police problems. >> reporter: >> reporter: chicago's re-imagined initiative encourages officers to break from traditional activities and it commits two officers to every south and west side strict. >> proactively in the field engage members in the community. >> those two officers, that is their only job? >> that is their only job. they're not responsible for radio calls. >> reporter: searchers say it seemed to be working. trust in police in the pilot district was on the rise. >> the aim is to have the police be responsive to communities, the community to say what it
8:54 am
wants and expect that's what policing is going to look like. >> reporter: while the pandemic and protests rolled back initial progress, community leaders assisting the program say they've seen change. >> what did it look like before the people you were able to reach out to? >> it was just calling. >> fast forward after the pandemic, we're walking with some of the dcos, and four, five, six people coming up to them knowing them by name. >> reporter: nicole mcbride says she's concerned the program could be expanding too quickly. >> oftentimes what happens, especially in major cities, is that program after program is introduced, then it's defunded or forgotten about or something else becomes the new highlight reel. so i think there's skepticism sometimes from community members that their voices actually will be heard this time. >> reporter: and you hear department leaders emphasizing
8:55 am
